Lane Mastodon

This was the first Infocomic: a new type of story containing nice graphics full with cinematic-sequences! Infocomics were programmed for Infocom by Tom Snyder productions and their C64 versions were saved from oblivion thanks to the PRECAP project.

Lane Mastodon vs. The Blubbermen was written by Steve Meretzky, the author of Planetfall, Sorcerer, A Mind Forever Voyaging, Leather Goddesses of Phobos, Stationfall, and co-author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It was released in March 1988.
